UCAN needs your support
You are why we do what we do - report, describe, comment, review. It is to bring to your eyes just what life is like for believers across Asia that we publish UCAN.
But as you know, the effort needs to be sustained if it is to have continuing effect.
UCAN publishes some 150 stories a week in four languages across six websites. We are grateful to benefactors in Europe and the US who support us. But those countries and the Church there are under increasing financial strain and their generosity no longer covers our costs.
We need financial help from our readers to sustain our efforts. Our reporters, editors, video producers and photographers all have families and we need to support them. They do excellent jobs, but they can't do their jobs for nothing.
Will you help us to sustain UCAN? Please click here to help.
Thanks in anticipation.

Archdiocese starts online confirmation classes
- John Choi, Seoul
- October 29, 2012
The archdioceseÔÇÖs Catholic Cyber Pastoral Office began offering the classes┬álast week to make preparation for the sacrament easier and more convenient. Usually, confirmation classes take at least five weeks.
Comprising 10 hour-long lectures, the class requires each person to take a test after each lecture. A person can watch up to five lectures and take five tests in a day.
Armed with a certificate and with a little liturgy training, people can then be confirmed in their parish.
ÔÇťOur online classes help those who are too busy to attend classes held at fixed times,ÔÇŁ said Father John Ri Ki-jung, director of the cyber ministry.
